5 Tips For Moving House

Are you planning on moving house? Here are five tips for moving to help you along.

Tip #1: Label Your Boxes

Box labelling is a vital part of the packing (and unpacking) process. It lets you see where your boxes need to go without having to open them up and check first, saving you a massive amount of time in the process.

Tip #2: Declutter In Advance

A cluttered home makes moving exponentially more complicated than one that doesn’t have any clutter in it. Moving out of a relatively sparse home involves less packing or rummaging around for things you want to take with you. Start the decluttering process now to avoid wasting time and money transporting belongings you don’t want or need. 

Tip #3: Consider What You Can’t Move

Some items, like grand pianos, need specialists who understand how to transport them safely. Make a list of all of the items in your home that you can’t move yourself to avoid difficulties on the day. 

Tip #4: Organise Your Utilities

Make sure you tell your utility providers you’re moving out, so you don’t end up paying bills for somebody else. 

Tip #5: Clean Up

After you’ve moved everything out, leave time to clean up before the new occupants move in. 

BONUS: How To Prepare Your New Home

  • Change the locks. You do not know who might have a set of keys for your property and be able to access it at any time. 
  • Set up the security system
  • Turn on the utilities – both the water and the electricity
